Solid State Media Player

Afternoon Experts!,

I am currently working in a museum-type environment. We have several exhibits which require continuous media playback, such as videos in a loop-mode, and videos that can be viewed by using push buttons.

We are currently using solid-state media players that are no longer supported, and would like to switch to a new solid-state player that is reliable.

My question to the Experts is, from current or past experiences, has there been a solid-state media player that has served you or your business' needs reliably?

Any experiences or suggestions would be immensely appreciated!

    That's a very broad question - solid state media players are too numerous today to fully list:  Do you have constraints like cost, capacity, and size to consider?

    My constraints are basically it has to play video files in a loop over HDMI and have inputs where I can wire buttons to it, as to play certain video files once activated.

    Wiki was the first place I looked. I'm still going through the list right now. I was just wondering if anyone on here has had any previous experience with such devices. I don't want to invest money into several devices that won't work :)

    Thanks for the reply Callandor!

    I haven't used these myself, so I don't have any recommendations based on personal experience, but I wanted to narrow down the focus of your question.  However, I value the opinions on, given the people who contribute to those forums.

    Dune media players also get good reviews.

    That site is a huge help! I think I found a player that will work for some of our exhibits. Thanks Callandor!
